Michael's Lawn Service, LLC


Since 2003

Overseeding

Light application of seed for an established lawn, this is NOT for bare spots. We use Premium tall fescue at 5lbs per 1000 sqft and 10lbs/1000 for bare spots. Shady areas get Premium fine fescue at 3lbs per 1000 sq ft. Bare and thin spots get double aeration and the remainder of the turf one pass. We do not use straw or hay because it creates a mess in your yard. This service is typically done in the fall (September/October). Bare spots may need re-seeding at 20lbs per 1000 sq ft to catch up with the existing turf and is an additional cost, as requested. We will skip mowing the following week.


Aerating

Core aeration is done on turf areas as a means of reducing turf compaction, reducing thatch buildup, improving the infiltration of water/nutrients, encouraging deeper roots, and creating an environment where grass seed can have direct contact with the soil.Thin spots get double aeration and the remainder of the turf one pass. Irrigation heads need to be marked, the day after we mow, once you have received your scheduled date. We can flag your irrigation at an additional cost. We are not responsible for any damage to the irrigation, buried wires or other underground obstacles.
